Greetings everyone! I am returning to blogging after a long hiatus. I’m excited to be back and looking forward to some changes in the blog (notice the new header photograph – it’s Aniakchak Lagoon as viewed from the hill behind our field camp). The biggest change is that I’ve switched my blog service from Edublogs to WordPress. Both offer free blogs, but I was unhappy that Edublogs had inserted advertisement into the text of my old blog. The switch to WordPress has been pretty easy. Edublogs uses the WordPress platform, so everything seems familiar. I’m still early in the game, though, and am interested to hear opinions on free blogs – anyone like Google’s “Blogger”? I’m also interested in advice or hints on how to jazz up this site. I’ll get to the links soon, but what about widgets or other options at WordPress? Suggestions will be welcome since you can save me the time of figuring things out on my own.
I’m not a tech savy blogger. I just like the ability to quickly post on the archaeology that’s happening here at Hamline. Right now we’re busy in the lab cataloging – trying to finish the 2005 field season. I’m looking for a few new volunteers to help sort the midden samples from 2007. It’s fun stuff.
